Simple Rosé Alfredo for Fettuccine Alfredo Day
Happy February! This month, we are celebrating our Salute Rosé and the delicious coppery delight it offers with every sip. This week, we were inspired by National Fettuccine Alfredo day (February 7th) to try out a very easy and absolutely delicious recipe for Rosé Alfredo. Using mostly pantry staples and coming together in less than half an hour, this might just become a go-to pasta night mainstay, and not just because you get to open a bottle of wine!
- 1 pound Linguine or similar pasta - we used Bucatini
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 medium shallots, diced
- 4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 cup Rubino Estates Salute Rosé
- 1 tablespoon organic tomato paste
- 1 1/2 cups organic parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
- 1 sprig fresh basil leaves, chopped, plus more for garnish
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Bring a few quarts of heavily salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta and cook to al dente.
- While the pasta cooks, melt the butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Once the butter has melted, adjust the heat to medium and add the shallots and garlic. Sauté until just fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add in the wine, tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the heat to high and bring the sauce to a boil. Once boiling, add 1/2 cup of starchy pasta water and boil on high for 5 minutes.
- When the pasta has finished cooking, add it directly into the pan and toss to coat. Remove pan from the heat and add in the parmesan cheese and chopped basil. Continue to toss the pasta around the pan until the pasta is coated evenly and the cheese has melted into the sauce.
- Divide the pasta in bowls and top with parmesan cheese, parsley and some more pepper.
